  • Troubleshooting of common issues during construction;
  • Compatibility of various types of air barrier materials;
  • Solutions to common issues with design, construction or inspection;
  • Research conducted that impact air barriers or other related building enclosure components;
  • Specific methods and details for typical situations, including roof/wall, window/wall, curtainwall and storefront, below grade, floor to floor, etc.;
  • Case studies of projects with unusual or difficult design or construction; and
  • Product durability and long-term performance.

Three presentation tracks are available, including Design, Construction and Testing, and Testing and Quality Assurance. Presentations are to be 60 minutes in length.
